Mayoral referrals

  • A new poll puts Boris and Ken neck and neck.
  • 2012 election posters, in a 1930's style.
  • Livingstone and Jones pull out of a BBC Mayoral debate over the inclusion of the BNP.
  • The BNP offer free weekend travel if elected, but don't say how they'd fund it.
  • A former Mayoral advisor says Boris ignored youth crime.
  • Boris has changed tack on fares — despite his manifesto committing to Retail Price Index +2% for the next four years, he now says he'll "bear down" on fares next year.
  • The RMT union is taking High Court action against Boris, claiming that the Mayor defamed Bob Crow.
  • Speaking of which, in last night's BBC Mayoral debate, Boris said he'd met with union leaders over the no-strike deal, but no such meeting has been reported to our knowledge. Did it ever happen?
  • Ken makes a speech assessing the state of the campaign.
  • Jenny Jones and Darren Johnson launched the Green jobs and employment manifesto in Hackney.
  • Boris spent the day celebrating St George's Day at Leadenhall Market, and apparently got 'knighted' by some pissed bloke.
